Gloucestershire seeks website and hosting overhaul
Gloucestershire County Council is seeking to establish a half million pound single operator framework to overhaul its website and intranet.
The council has released a tender divided into two lots – one to provide a content management system (CMS), and the other to provide hosting services.
The 48 month framework would be worth an estimated £470,000 and would replace existing arrangements when they expire in July.
According to the tender: “The scope of this Framework includes working in collaboration with the customer on projects including the provision of a new main council website and 16 sub sites which include telecare, Schoolsnet, virtual school transport for Gloucestershire and Staffnet (our corporate intranet).”
The contract will also cover the design of the new website and intranet, ongoing management of the website and integration of different elements.
The CMS will be expected to use open source technology, while the hosting service will be expected to be scalable, the tender said.
Other councils - Cheltenham Borough Council, Gloucester City Council and Tewkesbury Borough Council – will also be able to access the framework.
Suppliers have until the end of March to respond to the tender.
